Filled with a wealth of ideas that can energize both teachers and students of history, these three volumes present active learning strategies that get students to grapple with human issues and reveal the relevance of the past to the world today.
Designed to help students develop analysis and interpretation skills, activities are often interdisciplinary and appeal to a wide range of learning styles. Sample tasks: role plays, diaries, concept webbing, Venn diagrams, pros and cons, opinion polls, "art marts," photo analysis, history chains, "what if?" scenarios, talk shows, and more.
